Miradoro Restaurant Reopens for 2016 at Tinhorn Creek Vineyards
Tinhorn Creek Vineyards is pleased to announce the reopening of its winery restaurant Miradoro on March 1, after their annual two-month closure for the winter months. The five-time gold winner of the Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards, led by Executive Chef Jeff Van Geest and Restaurateur Manny Ferreira, offers modern wine country cuisine paired with Tinhorn Creek wines and panoramic views of the southern Okanagan Valley.
Paying homage to the bounty of the Okanagan, Miradoro’s new spring menu combines the culinary traditions of the Mediterranean with fresh local produce, meat and grains, as well as Ocean Wise seafood. Try the seared albacore tuna tataki with buttered popcorn polenta, fennel and bresaola; or the rabbit sugo con papperdelle zafferano – braised rabbit with sweet peas, castelvetrano olives and hand-cut saffron noodles. Chef’s three and five-course tasting menus are available for $55 or $75 per person with seasonal dishes served family style.
This year’s reopening is of special significance to the Miradoro team, as the restaurant celebrates its 5th Anniversary in March. “The last five years at Miradoro have been an incredible experience full of great food, wine, customers and co-workers,” says Chef Jeff Van Geest. “We want to thank our loyal patrons for their continued support and we look forward to many more successful years to come.”
In celebration of their 5th Anniversary, Miradoro is offering a five-course prix fixe menu for just $35 per person, available throughout the month of March. Indulge in ingredient-driven dishes like tuna crudo with grains and krauti, and confit duck leg with lentil ragu and winter squash puree, before ending the evening on a sweet note with Miradoro’s signature tiramisu. Add expertly-selected wine pairings for an additional $35 per person.
Returning on Tuesday, April 5 at 6:30pm, the Communal Table Dinners bring together locals and visitors to celebrate regional food and wine. In keeping with Miradoro’s food philosophy, weekly Communal Table Dinners ($30 per person) will feature a special multi-course menu of family style fare that is local, rustic, simple and seasonal. Upcoming themes include Spanish Tapas (April 5), La Cucina Neopoletano (April 12) and TwistedTuesday (April 19). Reservations are required; please call 250-498-3742.
